Accommodations with free breakfast make traveling to this attraction-rich California town more affordable. Comfortable temperatures, a green oasis of tall palms, and theme parks like Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure make Anaheim a premier destination for families on the move. The area is also close to the lively surf-swept sands of the American West Coast, where families as well as couples and single adults will enjoy a laidback destination with activities both wet and dry. Stroll arm in arm along Center Street Promenade as you browse quirky stores and restaurants, play a round of golf on the local fairways, or see an event at the Honda Center.
Things to see and do
If you're bringing the kids to Anaheim, then you're likely to have Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm listed on your travel itinerary, but when you're traveling alone or with a special someone, you may prefer to check out the area's beaches, spas and nightclubs to unwind and relax, or dance to your favorite tunes.
Disneyland is located in Anaheim itself, while Knott's Berry Farm is just a few minutes away in Buena Park. Both feature a variety of attractions, from the thrills of Knott's La Revolucion and Supreme Scream to Disneyland’s more family-friendly rides like Star Tours and King Triton's Carousel. Disneyland enchants small children with character meetings and a magical movie setting, while thrill-seekers get their adrenaline fix at Knott's Berry Farm.
Huntington Beach lies around 20 minutes from Anaheim, and features a classic pier where visitors can grab a burger at Ruby's Surf City Diner or shop for souvenirs at the Surf City Store. Fishing is also available from the pier. Roughly the same distance away, Newport Beach offers sandy shores, ocean views and plenty of coastline for beachcombers seeking out shells and hidden treasures.
The Bravo Nightclub in Anaheim is ideal for socializing, cocktails and dancing. If you're there on a Friday, you'll have the opportunity to display your salsa skills. Disney now features a nightclub-type attraction known as the Mad T Party experience, held every night. Here you can show off your moves on the dance floor and enjoy live musical performances by talented, theme-based musical acts.
Disney's Grand California Hotel includes the Mandara Spa. Treatments are inspired by both Eastern and Western cultures —listen to the distant sound of chimes fill the air as you walk past natural terracotta and warm sandy shades. Revitalize with a Balinese-inspired Sunrise Awakening or try a Bamboo Massage. Consider a visit to the Bodycentre Wellness Spa, which offers massages, oxygen therapy and detox wraps.
The John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana (SNA) is the closest commercial airport to Anaheim—around 20 or 30 minutes by car. Visitors can also fly into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). If arriving here, you will need to rent a car or take a taxi to reach the city of Anaheim. Trains and buses service the city center as well.
In Anaheim, you'll enjoy a climate resembling Mediterranean shores. The winter months are warm, and the summers are toasty, which makes the destination a year-round pleasure. If you intend to visit the theme parks between November and February, consider bringing rain gear, since precipitation is more likely to occur in cooler temps.
Places to stay
An abundance of hotels and resorts adorn the avenues of Anaheim, so visitors can reserve rooms in everything from five-star to budget-friendly accommodations. Disneyland boasts three hotel resorts of its own, and if you choose to stay at any of them you'll have convenient access to the parks. Catch the monorail into Disneyland from Downtown Disney, or use the exclusive private entrance into the Disney California Adventure Park. More affordable accommodations include the Portofino Inn and Suites, a functional, spacious and clean option.
Seaside hotels are available in Huntington Beach and Newport Beach, but if you're traveling during the summer months, plan for higher prices because of the proximity to Southern California’s famously scenic and comfortable ocean areas.
Kick-start a busy day with a full stomach at Anaheim hotels offering free breakfast. From the comfortable Best Western Park Place Inn Mini Suites to the Days Inn Anaheim Maingate, fill up on deluxe continental options like cold meats, waffles, croissants and tea or coffee before heading out to explore. Unwind on a warm beach, introduce your children to magical destinations, or recharge at a first-class spa before dining out and dancing the night away.
